  Description     : a Pd library of clones of Max/MSP 4.5 objects

Cyclone is a library of PureData classes, bringing some level of compatibility
between Max/MSP and Pd environments. Although being itself in the early stage
of development, it is meant to eventually become part of a much larger
project, aiming at unification and standardization of computer musician's

In its current form, cyclone is mainly for people using both Max and Pd, and
thus wanting to develop cross-platform patches. In this respect, cyclone has
much in common with Thomas Grill's flext, and flext-based externals. See
Thomas' page. While flext enables developing new cross-platform classes,
cyclone makes existing classes cross-platform. 

Cyclone also comes handy, somewhat, in the task of importing Max/MSP patches
into Pd. Do not expect miracles, though, it is usually not an easy task.
